Disc Dog Competition Organizations

Here is a list of disc dog competition organizations. Although it isn’t required, disc dog clubs typically use one of the following organizations’ rules for their competitions. Most of these organizations have their own respective world finals and clubs (or an individual) can offer qualifying competitions for those world finals. Visit each organization’s website for the most up-to-date rules and events. Will update as needed.
